By Sen and Sokol

- There are only
- kinds of people in the world:
- Those who know calculus and those who don’t.

- Is a branch of mathematics focused on
- Limits
- Functions
- Derivatives
- Integrals and
- Infinite series

- …Is the study
- Of
- How
- Things
- Change

- Calculus has applications in
- Science,
- Economics,
- And Engineering.
- It can solve
- Many problems
- For which
- Algebra alone
- Is insufficient.

- Used in
- Every branch of Physics,
- Computer Science,
- Statistics,
- Engineering,
- Economics,
- Business,
- Medicine,
- Demography,
- And in other fields,
- Wherever a problem
- Can be mathematically modelled,
- and an optimal solution can be found.

- Applications of Differential
- And Integral calculus
- In Physics Science
- Include
- Computations involving
- Velocity
- And
- Acceleration,
- The slope of a curve
- And
- Optimization.

- Applications of Integral calculus
- Include computations
- Involving
- Area,
- Volume,
- Arc length,
- Centre of mass,
- Work,
- And pressure.

- In Business
- Specialists look at
- The Derivatives
- Of Trends
- That
- Can help them
- Predict
- The Future
- Of
- The Stocks and Markets.

- Architects
- Use
- Optimization
- To calculate
- The best amount of material
- They can get within
- Their Budget
- And
- OptimalSpace in a Building
- They are designing.

- Calculus
- can be used
- To compute
- The Trajectory
- Of a Shuttle.

- …Or
- The amount of Snow
- In the Driveway.

- …It can be used to calculate
- The amount of Area taken up by
- An irregularly shaped
- Flower Bed
- Or Swimming Pool
- When
- Designing
- The Layout
- Of
- A Piece Of Property.

- In the World of
- Medicine,
- Calculus can be used
- To find
- The Optimal Branching Angle
- Of
- A Blood Vessel
- So as
- To Maximize Flow.

- In Nuclear Medicine,
- It is used to build
- Models of Radiation Which Targets
- Tumor Cells.

- In Economics,
- Calculus allows
- The Determination
- Of The MaximalProfit
- By providing a Way
- To Easily Calculate
- Both
- Marginal Cost
- And
- Marginal Revenue.
